Our Foreign Policy.
The foreign policy of Mr. Cleveland's
administration, outside of strong parti
sans, has few admirers or even support
ers, and yet it has been a very fair one,
appealing to the enlightened . intelli
gence of the world. When the move
ment to annex the Sandwich islands it
was not endorsed by Mr. Cleveland or
his eabnet, and this was in accordance
with the spirit of free institutions. The
United States has sufficient territory,
and more people than it can govern
well without annexing a mongrel pop
ulation, who have just emerged from
barbarism.'; It is true the revolution
was successfully managed by American
citizens; but the fact that they were
born in the United States, and, at the
time, owed ul egiauce to this govern
ment, should be no reason for extend
ing them sympathy of such a nature
that would contravene the well known
principles of international law. In the
affair of the steamship being fired upon
by a Spanish gunboat in Cuban waters
prompt action was taken byMr. Gresh
am, and reparation has j been made
by the home government. Regarding
the British landing forces at Corints to
enforse the payment of an idemnity of
$75,000 for a flagrant breach of inter
national law and courtesy by Nicaragua
the state department has gone so far as
the exigencies of the case demand, and
it is very evident that the incident will
pass without the least injury to the in
terests of the inter-oceanic canal, or the
slightest infringment of the Monroe
doctrine. England has a right to
guarantee protection to her subjects,
and in case of any injury being inflict
ed upon them, to demand reparation
in the shape of money indemnity. The
United States has adapted the same
course during a similar emergency. If
permanent.occupation of any portion
of Nicaraguan territory had been made
by Great Britain, undoubtidly the state
department would have entered a vig
orous protest; but until that exigency
arises the action of the British govern
ment docs not concern us. In this age
of the world complications between
nations are to be avoided, and war
should lie averted by every possible
means. A contest between armies on
land or navies at sea will cause dread
ful loss of life to victor and vanquished,
and civilization and humanity are ap
palled in contemplating the possible re
sults. Diplomacy is the modern means
of settling international difflculties,and
our relations with Great Britain or
in other countries the contest will be
waged more between clever diplomats
than armed cruisers. The jingo policy
which is advocated by many would re
sult in war, which would be deplorable
if we were successful, and especially
with a nation with whom the most
amicable relations have existed. Mr.
Cleveland and his secretary of state
have followed the more advisable
course and ( the United States will
emerge from all the entanglements
with Hawaii and also with Great
Britain's policy toward Nicaragua
with her honor untarnished, and
respected by the civilized world for her
successful efforts in the direction of en
during peace. Dalles Mountaineer.
State Superintendent Irwin has se
lected Gladstone Park, near Oregon
City, as the place of meeting , of the
etate teachers association, and the date,
July 10th to 20th. Hood River was
selected by the teachers, at the last
meeting of the association, by unan
imous vote, but afterwards it was found
that the state superintendent had the
authority, by act of the legislature, to
say where the meetings should be held.
It now seems the superintendent has
shown his authority by selecting an
other place of meeting in opposition to
the expressed, wish of the teachers who
attend the meetings of the association.
County Superintendent Shelley's letter
to the state superintendent, published
iii the Glacier April 13th, showed
that Hood River was selected by the
teachers in1 good faith, that the teach
ers had regarded the matter as settled,
and everything was favorable for the
meeting here. But the state superin
tendent has listened to the importu
nities of interested parties in other
places,' where street railway companies
have more influence than county su
perintendents or school teachers. He
has given no good reason for the selec
tion of Gladstone Park. His excuse is
that the Chautauqua society will meet
there and that the teachers can meet
with them. The fact that the associa
tion will not meet at Hood River will
be, a great disappointment to many
teachers throughout the state who had
declared their intention of coming to
the meeting at Hood River.
Senator Stewart of Nevada, a popu
list bullionaire senator and an English
man by birth, has written an open let
ter to the president on the subject of
England's occupation of Corinto that
is intended to be very sarcastic. If
Stewart is "spilin1 fora flcht" he ought
to have it, and if such as he could be
conscripted and sent to the front, war
would be welcomed even by the old
soldiers. ' '

After all the comment that has been
m tde over President Cleveland's course
with England over the Nicaragua affair,
it seems that he has been exactly cor
rect. The justness of England's claim
cannot be disputed, and had the United
States interfered it would have been
virtually the establishing of a protector
ate over all the country south of us, and
we would have been kept in hot water
continually by the peppery Spanish re
publics, who not being held responsible
for their acts would have been barking
at the heels of every nation in Europe.

take 300 crates a day.

One hundred of the eminent lawyers,
politicians and business men of the
state have lately, through the columns
of the Oregoniuu, given the farmers
much sage advice as how to conduct
their business in order to prosper. It
would now seem to be the proper
thing for one hundred eminent farmers
to tell the lawyers and business men
how conduct their business in order
t risp-r. Good advice of this sort
lioen.i't cost much, iiini it would be
ungracious to discuss its value. Rural
Cyclists will do well to heed the note
of warning sounded by Sir Benjamin
Ward Richardson, who is eminent in
physics, besides being an enthusiastic
wheelman. He cautions ail against
overwork, advising cyclists by no
means to give up the wheel, but to use
it temperately, avoiding long-continued
exertion, trials of speed, &c. Like
other muscular exercise, cycling
hastens the circulation, making de
mands on the heart. If overdone,
instead of being the splended aid to
physical development which it is so
well calculated to be, it causes fatigue,
wPh consequent prostration of the
nervous system; and persistence in
this course leads to collapse and prem
ature death. "The heart gets unduly
active, the arteries become unduly ex
tended and the elastic tissue of the
arteries and of the body generally loses
its spring, and then the body becomes
prematurely old and broken." These
effects are in many cases intensified by
the unnatural stooping position, as
sumed merely for the sake of speed,
which compresses the lungs and of
course greatly increases the strain upon
the heart. In these days, when de
rangements of the heart, so grave as
to cause sudden death, are so alarm
ingly prevalent, it will be wise to give
serious attention to this advice.

A Petrified Forest.
In making the fill near the big
bridge the force of men employed by
the O. R. & N. Co. exhumed, a few
days ago, a buried forest of petrified
timber. This is evidence that this por
tion of the country, aside from the vol
canic overflow, has been filling in since,
either from the washing of streams or
other causes. The trees were of the
poplar species which onlv thrive in
moist places while the growths around
.and in the gulch are pine and fir. The
specimens were founu several teet un
der ground, showing that they had laid
in their position foreountlesscerturies.
This buried forest has been visited by
several persons, who have been anxious
to gather pieces of the petrified sub
stance as relics. Mountaineer.
The Indemnity claimed by Great
Britain from Nicaragua is not so large
that it would impoverish the country
to pay it, and there must be some other
reason than that of poverty that it is
not forthcoming. Perhaps the Central
American Republics consider the Mon
roe doctrine advocated for their espe
cial benefit, and that they have only
to ask to receive help from the United
States in any and all emergencies. If
they lake this view of the matter they
are hugging a delusion, for this coun
try U not to be forced into difficulties
with Europe simply because the Latin
nations do not pretend to carry out the
rules of international law in their deal
ings with the world. Mountaineer.
s "But didn't you tell me you were an

said the old man; "I'll tell you how it
is. Last spring I went down to New

I went ter church, and it happened to
be an Episcopalian one, aim among
other things I heard 'em say that
they'd left undone them things they'd
oughter done and done them things
they hadn't oughter done; and I said
to myself, 'That's just my fix too,' and

myself an Episcopalian." "Well,"

that during the flood of 1894 about H3
nshwbeels were washed out by the
flood, at a loss of perhaps $75,000 or
$80,000 to the owners. At the time
this was thought a loss that could not
be recovered for many years; but when
the season opened on the 10th of April,
every wheel had been replaced, and be
sides there were sevearl scows that had
been constructed. Last season there
was a phenomenal run of salmon, but
this year it is not expected to be as large.

' Don't Stop Tobacco.
The tobacco habit grows on a man

Hood River, April 22, 1895. Editor
Glacier: Owing to the fact that a
large number of the fruit growers have
canceled their names from the article
of agreement which formed the basis of
the Hood River Berry Association, the
board of managers elected have decided
to turn the business of shipping the
fruit over to the Fruit Growers' Union,
which was organized on a sounder
basis. The union . has since made ar
rangements to send Mr. T. R. Coon
East to represent the growers in the
Eastern market, and will send others
as they are needed; the undersigned
having charge of the shipping here.
l ne pian to oe useu is tor tue man
ager here to get all the information
possible concerning the markets in the
consuming centers, both from dealers
and our special agents, and furnish the
same to the growers who patronize the

their fruit to any destination they
choose and turn it over to the manager
here, who will ship' it as directed; or
the fruit can be turned over to the
manager, yho will always stand ready
to put it on the best markets in reach.
And all fruit not sold at a fixed price
before leaving here will be controlled
by the union until It reaches the mar
ket and is sold, and will be subject to
being diverted by the head office or the
special agent in the East, who will be
in touch with the conditions of the
markets by telegraph at all times.
A sufficient amount will be remitted
to the union to defray expenses In
every case, and the balance to the

The operations of the union will not
be confined to stockholders alone, but
will ship for any person who may wish
to have their fruit shipped.
